Review updated:

I have a family of three boys who all love cricket. They have been members of their local clubs and have played since under 8's. They have always looked forward to watching as much cricket as they can on tv. It's a favorite family activity. We are so disappointed with channel 7's decision to only show some matches on free to air. All your advertising says we can watch every match for free. This is simply not the case and is misleading and untrue. Today, the only way to watch the one day match is through foxtel. We don't have foxtel, nor can we afford to get it. Channel 9 understood this and made sure every match was available. You are providing a substandard coverage compared to them, that's for sure. So many people feel the same way as we do - I can see that in the many other complaints. Please reconsider your decision to do this and provide all the matches, in every form of the game be that Tests, One Day or Big Bash, Fred to air as you promised.

    Same again for the T20 series against Sri Lanka October 2019 - advertised in The Sunday Times on 27 October 2019 (same day as the first game) as 'Live, Free and For Everyone ...' no coverage for the free ... surely not in the fine print in a double page spread of all the cricket that I am not going to see 'live, free ...' Channel 7 cannot be allowed to get away with this for our national game - we are trying to wean off Channel Nine ...after many successful years ...
